Travel through time with Glashütte in historic Dresden
German Watch Museum Glashütte to participate in Dresden Museum Night
For the first time ever, the German Watch Museum Glashütte will take part in Dresden Museum Night, set for Saturday, September 17, 2016, from 6.00 pm to 1.00 am. The Museum will present a selection of exhibits representing the more than 170-year history of the watchmaking industry in Glashütte. A co-founder of the Museum, Glashütte Original will open its Boutique in Dresden's QF mall, near the renowned Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), especially for this evening exhibition. The German watchmaker looks forward to welcoming many interested visitors and to lively discussions on time measurement, precision mechanics and craftsmanship past and present.
A choice selection of objects from the Museum's permanent exhibition offers exclusive insight into the museum’s collection. Along with elaborately decorated men’s pocket watches from the early years of watchmaking in Glashütte, a grandfather clock from the turn of the previous century, a marine chronometer from the current special exhibition “Glashütte on Board”, and a slim men’s “Spezimatic” wrist watch from the GDR period, one can review all aspects of the art of watchmaking from the past to the present, illustrated with the help of multimedia presentations and the current collection from Glashütte Original.
The German Watch Museum team will be happy to answer questions about the exhibits and their history. Visitors will have an opportunity to observe the work of a master watchmaker at a historic watchmaker’s workbench and to learn interesting facts about this precise handicraft.
